6 Ways to Fall in Love With Your Front Door

1 Day

My front door.....well, yea...it was not pretty. In fact, if I'm completely honest with you, I was totally embarrassed by what a person would see when they drove by my house or walked up to my front door. Aside from installing a motion sensor light and putting up a welcome sign that displayed my favorite kind of shoes, I hadn't done a thing. But this fall I was determined to change that. In fact I found by making these few changes my whole mood changed when I walked up to my front door. Here are 5 affordable ways I used my fall inspiration to create a more inviting front entryway.
In the beginning...........
My font door and entry was dirty and it was green...a very sickening pea green.
Then Came the mighty paint brush with BEHR MARQUEE Rumors in Semi-Gloss.
Instantly my door was transformed.
I had this old rug that was no longer welcoming.
Instead of tossing it, I painted it. And it finally spoke to me.
It said, "Heyyyy!" (Ya'll I am so country smh. I apologize. Haha no I don't.)
Then I dressed up the door with a simple floral Cornucopia.
Brought in some mums and pumpkins.
And I was done. Finally a front door I could love. ;) Total cost for my fall inspired front doorway: Approx. $60

      it is good to attract bees - they need the nectar. But if you're allergic to them, you may want faux mums.

    Looks really nice! It's amazing what a change of paint color can do, and so inexpensively. Recently painted ours from pale gray to a nice blue. Tfs
